New Imaging Ultrasound System Reduces Scan Time

September 24, 2010 – A new volume imaging ultrasound system has been released that improves workflow in 2D and real-time volumetric echocardiography.

The Siemens Acuson SC2000, release 1.5 and its eSie Measure Workflow Acceleration package is the first system that provides semi-automated measurements for routine echo exams. This addresses the issue of repetitive stress injuries in sonographers while improving the reproducibility and quality of each exam by reducing scan time.

IN Focus coherent imaging technology enables the user to focus on the entire field of view instead of a single focal zone by using 64 parallel receive beams. Image quality at all depths is improved without any user intervention to ideally display the cardiac structure and motion.

Non-stitched, real-time full-volume imaging also provides wider access to patients and captures true physiologic information, including color flow and accurate volume quantification for the left and right ventricle. The volume stress echo application enables full-volume acquisition in one single heartbeat per stage and auto-extracts reference planes for comparison.
